This sounds good for updating, etc. As it already requires at least xell, you have to solder the jtag anyway, so might as well solder lpt too and just flash xbr. Will like using this to have linux option though.

Just to clarify:
1. You solder JTAG connections, so you are able to run unsigned code.
2. You skip entirely LPT-flasher soldering, because you don't need it anymore.
3. You put the LiveCD to your 360 and using built-in tools you dump NAND (to USB drive?)
4. You take your NAND dump to PC and after making sure it's good (Degraded, several dumps comparision, etc.) you prepare XBR image.
5. Using LiveCD once again, you flash XBR to your 360.

Did I take it right?

If I did, it would be awesome! I just ordered brand new Jasper with MFR date 05.2009 to replace my XBRed Xenon for which I did a special RJ-45 port just to flash newer versions of XBR. I was about to do the same to Jasper, but if I could skip chasis cutting, doing more soldering (and of course wasting much more time), it would be just GREAT!



Yes. you will no longer need your lpt port to flash, unless something goes wrong.

I thought you needed Xell flashed at the start of your Nand 1st to enable running Linux from a cd!?
To do this you would need LPT, some conflicting posts.

No dude, you'll need to at least flash Xell first in order to boot linux.
This is how I flashed my last xbox using Gentoo; same method can be used here and should load faster:

-JTAG wire Xbox360
-Solder flasher (I use LPT)

Now in NandPro (I've only done this with 16mb boards, no big blocks yet)

nandpro lpt: -r16 front0.bin 0 50
nandpro lpt: -r16 front1.bin 0 50

This will dump the first 50 blocks o the Nand, and it's where Xell will reside in.



Hey, thank you for this great tutorial!

But, do you think, would the method be the same for big block Jasper (256MB to be precise)?

Do you have to type:

nandpro lpt: -r256 front0.bin 0 50

instead of:

nandpro lpt: -r16 front0.bin 0 50

?

So you only need JTAG and put in this CD or what?

XBR requires the jtag hack to work.

Sorry, I don't have one to test this out, but I'm sure it can be done if you use xbrflash for sure.

Try using latest xbrflash.c v0.3.1 and first dump your nand like this:

./xbrflash.out -d backupnand.bin

See what happens there.

As for nandpro, test injecting xell.bin for jaspers BB nands to an xbr.bin and see how many blocks does it flash into it.

If blocks are greater than 50 than you'll "nandpro lpt: -r256 front0.bin 0 XX

No problems dumping nand, but dont know how to get this live cd to dump it to the usb and read the xbr.bin from the usb. It recognizes it when I plug it in but doesnt dump to the drive. Any ideas?

Ok, I never figured that one out, but I did get it to work with ftp. When you boot the live cd it will give you your IP address if you have your ethernet plugged in. Just ftp to that address and transfer the xbr.bin to the "IMAGES" folder and just run your commands like normal. Very easy! biggrin.gif

Hope this helps anyone who was having trouble with this.

I think this would be better if we could have it like xbxhdm.


like, in windows add your own xbr.bin to the images folder, run script and than run this from xell

simply do "xbrflash -f xbr.bin"

Should be best in my opinion.

That would be a great idea, but, I think it should be like different editions of the distro, by using it like xboxhdm, you are losing some functionality.

Just tried what you said. I typed:

nandpro jasper_xbr_3: -w256 xell.bin 0

And this is what nandpro gave me:

Using Virtual Nand Device File: jasper_xbr_3.bin
Starting Block:0x000000
Ending Block:0x003FFF
Configured for Large Block Nand
Writing
File: xell.bin FileLen:14a000 Blocks:50
004F

And now... I feel a little bit confused. There is blocks: 50, so it should mean, that xell only writes 50 first blocks, as it does for 16mb boards. But what about FileLen and that "004F" thing? 004F is 79 in dec AFAIK... Please, could you explain it to me? Do you think that dumping only 50 first blocks of NAND using LPT would be enough? Maybe it is a good idea to dump, lets say, 100 first blocks of NAND (just to be safer)?

Best regards!
